Always nice to walk the boardwalk and see some of the strores that have clothes, jewelry and other stores giving off season sales.

What I like about Bethany boardwalk is there is enough to do and to look at without being overwhelmed. It has just the right amount of shops with enough variety.

A stroll with our ice cream and some souvenir shopping capped a beautiful week here. It was a Thursday and still busy, but less than Ocean City or Rehoboth. It felt cleaner, too. I wish parking wasn't so pricey.

My husband and I love Bethany Beach Boardwalk. It's not huge and overcrowded like Ocean City or Rehobeth. Lots of shops and restaurants and I believe it's a quarter of a mile boardwalk along the beach for your viewing pleasure. There's a great coffee shop...More

We have had a home in Bethany for 40 years, and every year Bethany's boardwalk adds something new. It is a short boardwalk with only a few blocks of commercial shops. There is a lot of variety in the offerings, restaurants, seasonal shops, and specialty...More

The "Boardwalk" in the traditional sense is pretty darned small. But, the plank walk way that I would call "Boardwalk" leads to the downtown area that is more like a traditional boardwalk. A very nice experience all around.

Small but well maintained boardwalk, a little short of restaurants/ bars but pleasant walk nonetheless

A safe fun family boardwalk with no crazies running around. Ice cream, beach food or fine dining it has it all.

Nice place but Rehoboth has more stores. Bethany is much cleaner and more expensive though. If you're in the area- go to both they aren't far from each other

No. This area is not dog friendly in the summer months. The beach is not dog friendly. I'd say that the entire town of Bethany beach is not dog friendly. Won't visit here again.

There is a coffee shop, however, most of the shops close during the late Fall and Winter.
